    About Virgo (1)

    (August 23-September 22)

    By Kramer Wetzel

    Flavor: There's always a lightly delicate but piquant flavor which accompanies a Virgo, some would suggest it is the aroma of a cleaning fluid of some kind.

    Grocery store: If you go grocery shopping with a Virgo, be prepared to read the labels. Or be prepared for the Virgo to read the labels. The packaging itself doesn't matter, it's what's inside that counts, and this is what the Virgo seeks to find out.

    Wal-Mart, after midnight: Ever been shopping with a Virgo? Ever think about the number of times someone can squint at a label, and wonder just exactly what part of which animal those things came from? Imagine the scientific curiosity at work here. There's another problem, though, and one that suggests the results are not all in yet, that this an area which is going to require further research. "I'm not going in a Wal-Mart, please don't make me go there," I heard one Virgo girl whine. Good stuff, cheap, didn't quite work on her. The results are still up for study, as of right now. And most of the Virgo girls I know wouldn't be up after midnight, anyway, not if there was something else to do, like sleep.

    Brick wall: When a Virgo encounters a fixed, immovable obstacle, there is but one solution. First, this brick wall must be disassembled, one grain of mortar at a time. And each single grain of sand that makes up this wall needs to be properly stored and labeled so that it can be reassembled later. Or so that whoever caused this obstacle can be found out and blamed. In any case, the Virgo will assure that this is all done perfectly.

    Body part: Viscera. Although Virgo can be altruistic, they have a tendency to act the martyr, using guilt as a weapon. Although adaptable to change, they can be vulnerable to the influence of other people. A Virgo will always find ways to be useful. And although shy, Virgos are idealistic and communication-oriented with an ability to sell. Always practical, they would be an effective negotiator because of their ability to instinctively respond to the needs of others. And they can endure endless details and responsibilities.

    The Virgo analytical ability is amazing. A Virgo can seem quite talkative. They also have a penchant for books, magazines, and writing. There is an omnipresent critical eye for organization and detail. This can come across as an irresistible urge to improve everything and everyone. Not all Virgo's are neat freaks, though, and some can be quite sloppy, disorganized, and irresponsible. They've got this hypocrisy thing, don't they? Like a drill sergeant gone haywire, a Virgo can address someone's bad habits but then they have the same bad habits themselves. They are us usually health conscious and not overly competitive. Virgo may be a craftsman, seamstress, or designer. Virgos usually have a fond interest in cartography, travel, or philately.

    I lived in an apartment once with a property manager who was a Virgo. True to form, she had been in her new office for about 20 minutes when she calls me up and says, "You realize that you still owe the other half of your pet deposit?" This is a fine example of your Virgo attention to detail. I had neglected to pay that second half of the pet deposit for more than a year. Didn't get it past her Virgo eye, though.



    Bernstein, Dvorak, and Charlie Parker were all Virgo's.

    But for Virgo listening pleasure, try: Hayden's "Symphony No. 104," or Brahm's "Symphony No. 4." Maybe some Enigma, too. Any good Virgo will also go crazy over Gregorian Chants, too.
